"Board games. Mead. Good peeps. What else do you need? It’s always a good time in the mead hall when board game night is happening."
Games will be provided or feel free to bring your own!
The Roman Candle Pizzeria will be dropping off pizzas (available for sale by the slice), and some free snacks will be available, as well. Feel free to bring any non-alcoholic beverages or other food needs you may have!
Located in the back of the building.
THINGS TO NOTE
There are two ways to participate in this event - as an attendee looking to practice your technical interviewing skills, or as a volunteer, doing the interviewing. See more information below!
We're excited to partner with Codecinella (http://codecinella.org) for this event at the UW campus!
"Interviewing can be stressful. Come practice your interview skills with local professional women software developers. We are not recruiters, we are not representing our companies or hiring. As your peers we hope to give you some practice with a technical interview and feedback on your resume. Bring at least three copies of a current resume. Volunteers will give you feedback on your resume as well as on your interview.
We will interview for three job descriptions:
- Junior Front End Developer
- Junior Software Developer
- Junior Database Administrator"

You know that pile of stickers, buttons, branded bags, stress balls, notebooks and other swag you've collected over the years from conferences, meetups and jobs that's just sitting around, taking up space?
Bring it on down to Working Draft Brewery for a "swag swap"!
Don't have anything to contribute? No worries! You'd be doing folks a favor to take things home and make use of them. (Seriously - one person can only use so many fidget spinners!)
We'll also have some custom Women in Tech buttons :)
* Kids are welcome ❤️ The brewery has a kids corner with games and toys.
* Men are also welcome, if they are the guest of a women or nonbinary member.
* Come anytime between 5pm and 7pm!
* For parking, there's a paved lot adjacent to the brewery, as well as ample street parking. It's also right off the bike trail.
* Working Draft is wheelchair accessible.
Join us on November 28th for an encore presentation of Jennifer Javornik's Grace Hopper Celebration 2018 talk: "Taking Grace Hopper Digital: Designing VR Experiences with Real-World Impact".
Learn more about the virtual reality game "Breaking Boundaries in Science" (http://www.filamentgames.com/breaking-boundaries-in-science), an immersive mobile VR app that celebrates some of history’s most influential women in science: Grace Hopper, Marie Curie, and Jane Goodall. Drawing from primary sources, Breaking Boundaries elevates these women’s stories in contemporary media, emphasizing biographical details like their work environments and personal artifacts in order to fully flesh out the player’s understanding of their lives and achievements. The game even features the voice talent of Dr. Jane Goodall herself!
Jennifer Javornik is the vice president of sales at Filament Games (http://www.filamentgames.com/) in Madison and the director of the Wisconsin Games Alliance (http://www.wisconsingamesalliance.com/). A former improv comedian, she is also the author of The STEM Mom Series, books for children featuring the lives of moms with STEM careers.
Networking at 6pm, followed by the presentation at 6:30 - and more networking to follow!
Please allow time for street parking, or park in the ramp across the street.
